Here is another crock of Mongolian beef recipe that I gleaned from the link listed below for fake out take out. One reviewer says this is preferred over their local restaurant's version of it. Having looked long and hard for a restaurant that can cook Mongolian beef as well as Sichuan Omi did back in 1982 is very difficult. Indeed, I've given up on a real version in America anymore. I'll eat something like this that has good flavor before rewarding a restaurant to be lazy and not twice fry the beef with appropriate seasonings and served with the right items. Just saying... I can throw something like this together without worrying about having better pretty much anywhere in North America (the US or Canada)

FOR THE MEAT:

2 pounds flank steak
3 cloves of garlic, minced
4 sliced green onions--one is for garnish
1 teaspoon dried minced onion (or 1/2 fresh onion, diced very small)

THIS IS THE SAUCE -- if you have bottle Hoisin, go ahead and use it here instead
1/2 cup soy sauce (I used La Choy)
1/4 cup white wine
1/4 cup cooking sherry
1/2 tablespoon white wine vinegar (optional--I forgot to add it!)
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon molasses
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 tablespoon peanut butter (if allergic, use black bean paste)
3 tablespoon brown sugar

AND THEN:
1/4 cup cornstarch (to dredge meat--don't add to sauce mixture)
1 teaspoon red chile pepper flakes --- optional -- if you don't like things spicy, you can add at the table if you'd like.

The Directions.
--slice your meat in thin strips and toss in a Ziploc bag with cornstarch.
--add all of the liquid and dried spices to your crockpot, and the peanut butter, and mix well. Add the garlic and three of the sliced green onions. If you are using fresh onion, add that now, too.
--put your meat on top, and toss gingerly to coat.

Cover and cook on low for 4-6 hours. Flank steak is thin and has very little fat, and will cook quickly. There isn't a lot of liquid in this dish, so if your crock tends to cook hot, please check it after 3 hours.

The meat is done when it is no longer pink and has reached desired tenderness. I cooked our meat in a 6qt oval slow cooker and it was done after 4 hours on low.

Serve over steamed or fried rice, and garnish with freshly sliced green onion.

Make Mongolian Beef at home with this gluten-free family-friendly recipe from ayearofslowcooking.com. Much healthier and less expensive, too!


I'm not even near perfect, but I know someone who is.

Oh, I'm going to have to try this. I think I may try using the $Tree (frozen rib-eye steak, frozen peppers, etc.)

Made this today. It is pretty good. It seems to be missing something and I'm not sure what but it might just be the choice of wine and vinegar that I used. I think it should be slightly sweeter but DH will know more likely.
